Roni, 27, was to marry in Israel in September. Instead, she is fighting advanced leukemia. She urgently needs a bone marrow transplant to survive.
If you are of mixed Yemenite-Moroccan descent and between the ages of 18-50, you could be a match. Only a saliva test is needed. A test kit will be mailed to you.
Letter from Roni’s fiancé:
Roni Cohen is my fiancé and one month ago our life came to a screeching halt.
She didn’t feel well. We arrived to the emergency room in the morning. In the afternoon, we learned she has leukemia and in the evening she found herself being pumped with chemotherapy.
One month from now she was supposed to be my wife. She will be my wife, but only if I succeed, only if I save her.
The only way to save her is by finding a suitable bone marrow donor.
About a week ago the doctors told us that they were not able to find a suitable donor in the local or global bone marrow registries.
If that wasn’t enough, we were told that if we fail in finding a suitable donor within the next month, her story will end at age 27.
I have no intention of allowing that to happen.
With this message, we only have one goal. To reach as many hearts and minds as we can.
I’m looking for people like Roni, people of half Yemenite half Moroccan decent, or a combination between Yemenite and North African decent, between the ages of 18-50, to help us.
